    hello i'd just like to show my incubator i'm working on it's made out of a 48 quart cooler. for a heater it has a 60 watt light bulb on a dimmer switch and a computer fan for circulation. it's holding 100 deg.temperture i'm unsure of rh.because the meters are broke.

    I'm proud of you.
    A dimmer switch for a light bulb heated cooler bator is better than a thermostat IMO.
